Gore warns of 'extremist fringe' Republicans taking Congress, White House By Daniel Strauss - 07/30/12 11:07 AM ET

Former Vice President Al Gore warned of the dangers of the "extremist fringe" of the Republican party winning control of Congress and the White House.

Gore's warnings came in a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraising email sent out Monday.

"The last thing we want is the Republican Party -- a party that’s been hijacked by an extremist fringe -- to win the White House and tighten its grip on Congress," Gore writes. "That would spell disaster for our economy and our environment."

Gore specifically mentions Karl Rove and billionaires David H. and Charles G. Koch -favorite targets of Democrats.

"Karl Rove and the ultra-conservative Koch brothers are pouring millions of dollars into this campaign," Gore continued. "Democrats are depending on the individual support we get from people like you."

Gore's former running mate —former President Bill Clinton- is also getting involved in the upcoming 2012 elections. Clinton will formally renominate President Obama at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina in September.

"I am fully committed to doing everything I can to make sure we win a Democratic majority to partner with President Obama. I hope I can count on you. Please join me," Gore concludes in the email.

Gore is way out there. He is in no position to point fingers.

Yep, I spent this last weekend with 65,000 other “extremist fringe” types in Arlington, Texas. And they’re not happy.

Forget the Koch brothers. The average American patriot is highly motivated these days to end this national nightmare.

Can you say “grass roots”, Mr. Gore?

Well, if anybody intimately knows “extremist fringe” it would have to be Al Gore, poster child of the Extreme Lunatic Fringe.

Gore warns of 'extremist fringe' Republicans taking Congress, White House

Hmm, Al baby, let's see. When have we EVER had an "extremist fringe" of Republicans take control of Congress? We've had the Republicans take control for the first time in over 40 years in 1994 and it moderated the crap out of Clinton's leftward leanings, in spite of the Republicans not being able to do everything they would have liked.

By contrast, what has control of Congress by the "extremist fringe" of Democrats wrought? The welfare state. The trashing of certain ethnic groups post-Great Society. The aiding and abetting of left wing hate groups and misery pimps like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Loius Farrakhan. Obamacare. Metastatic growth of government. I'd like to try as many years with "extremist" Republicans as the socialist Democrats have had since 1930 and see the results.

Mitt Romney is “extreme fringe”....now that IS funny!

Gore is going to be too busy attending bankruptcy court hearings for his TV channel to get very involved in this election.

Yes, Al, we need to get back to the non-extremist America where gay people can marry, government dependency is desirable, fossil fuels are really dangerous and successful businessmen are evil.

To Al Gore, moderate Democrats like Joe Lieberman and Ben Nelson are “right wing”, RINOs like McCain are “extreme right”, and actual conservatives are “extremist fringe”.

"The last thing we want is the Republican Party to win the White House and require that Congress actually follow the law," Gore writes. "That would spell disaster for our party."

"Karl Rove and the ultra-conservative Koch brothers are pouring millions of dollars into this campaign," Gore continued. "Democrats are depending on the individual support we get from perverts, sexual deviants, felons, the dead, and millions of foreigners."

"Extremist" = an anticoncept used by libtards to smear pro-freedom, pro-God, and pro-natural rights conservatives in order to avoid debate and evade the real issue of the incompetence and evilness of the Obamarx.

Sure algore is a Looney Tune - but - it’s a fundraising letter to the base - this is how fundraising letters always read - just some red meat for the punters. Basically the same sort of thing as a Circus Sideshow Barker telling people to come inside and see the likes of which they’ve “never seen before”. It’s all about the $$$.

Funny how the DCCC is using a guy who can’t stay faithful to his wife and whose kids abuse drugs and drive under the influence.

Poor Democrats - they don’t have any moral role models.

Gore, it’s all over for you. Nobody cares what you have to say. Your 30 year hallucination of AGW has been exposed by the emails has a TOTAL SCAM. You have been revealed as nothing but two bit carnival barker and a bonified member of the HIDE THE DECLINE PARTY.
